A poem of “raging desire” and one reproaching her brothers are the two latest discoveries (2014, with a new piece in 2018) of poetry composed by Sappho, the famous Greek poet from Lesbos. Her perspectives on erotic desire and a family in crisis reach across 2600 years. 

This event is free and open to the public.
